Storm Eunice

There is disruption to council services caused by Storm Eunice.

Bin service suspended Friday 18 February

Because of the impact of Storm Eunice we have taken the decision to suspend recycling and waste collections today, Friday 18 February.

As you may be aware from media reports there is now a Red Wind Warning – the highest level- is in place to cover the impact of the high winds and weather conditions we are experiencing today. The Red warning means there is the possibility of travel delays, road and rail closures, power cuts and the potential risk to life and property.

Staff reported for work as usual this morning and some collections have taken place. However with the safety of staff in mind, the severity of the weather warning and worsening conditions, we have suspended the collections.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, we will catch up with missed collections as quickly as possible, Friday’s collection will take place on Monday.

Please consider putting your recycling and waste bin and containers in a safe place out of the wind if at all possible so that they are protected from the storm and are less likely to be blown away.
